Medical Emergency Stop in Nassau, Bahamas
We are on board Freedom of the Seas making an unscheduled stop in Nassau, Bahamas, to land a sick guest.
As we pulled into Nassau, we saw another Royal Caribbean ship, Monarch of the Seas.
No matter where you live, you have probably seen ads for Atlantis in Nassau, Bahamas. Here it is!
As we pulled into port, guests on board Freedom were lining the decks to watch the action.
On the dockside an ambulance was waiting.
This is a closer shot of Monarch of the Seas docked on the other side of us.
As we waited for the passenger and family to be landed we watched the tour boats go by. We visited Nassau twice a week for six years while we were aboard Majesty of the Seas. I remember when that house out there on Paradise Island was for sale for quite some time. It was painted pink at the time. I like the new owner's choice of white. Interestingly, there is no road over there on Paradise Island. To access your property, you must come and go by boat.
There is also plenty of commercial traffic here.
Finally, the patient has been landed and we will soon be on our way to our next port.
There they go!
We are sailing back out now and I have a full view of Monarch of the Seas once again.
There's Senor Frog's over there. :)
And, the last shot is of a seaside hotel. How pretty!
There is always something different happening on a cruise.
